So i recently wrote a e-mail to one of my besties who has a design blog and told her there were a few cleaning topics that i have come across that need to be shouted from the rooftops. And of course the modern version of shouting from rooftops is blogging. She suggested I get started myself - Hi, I'm Amanda.

BTW, if you are at all interested in design, specifically rules to live by in decorating your own home, check out the blog 'Orange + Peach' here on blogspot. Fabulous and funny.

Let me tell you a little about myself. I am married to a car enthusiast. An extream car enthusiasts. He's all man and doesnt think twice about walking through the house after waddling around on the garage floor for the past two hours. Meanwhile, I hold my breath, praying that he doesn't brush up against my walls.  He doesn't use the mat that I placed at the door from the garage to kitchen to wipe his feet before he comes inside. And he places his dirty closes on top of the empty laundry hamper. I love every bit of him! He is an amazing man, husband and father. He makes me lauph til my stomach hurts and I wouldn't change anything except the amount of money he spends on cars.

I am a mother of two little kiddos. Alice is my 3 year old and Eli just turned 1.  Alice is begining to be able to help pick up toys and throw things away etc. Eli on the other hand follows around after me tearing apart what I just put together. When I vaccum he stands in front of me and tries to mount the machine moving back and forth as if he were about to tame a wild mustang.

I have a degree that I paid way too much money for in Interior Design. I dream about how I can organize my home like you see in those Good Housekeepping and Southern Living magazines.

And finally, my inspiration or rather what has made me a passionant cleaning maching: tv.  No kididng.  Have you seen the shows on the documentary channes called 'Hoarders', or 'Hording: Buried Alive' or even 'Clean House: Messiest homes in America'? If you need motivation to purge I recommend watching these shows. You will be on a manic cleaning spree in less than 24 hours.

Okay, so that is me and this is the beginning of my blog.  Buh-bye til next time.   A.

  1. First of all, great job with the blog! Love it. Second, I am not surprised that B is not wiping his feet on the mat. But this is why we love our men! Third, being another that overpaid for a useless degree, I must say you are very good at what you do. I am sure you will find another use for it! Great blog...I am following!
